PNY 4GB SD Card
PNY has just released its first SD card to support the new SDHC standard. The new 4GB model is the first from the company to take advantage of the new standard's higher memory limits and is also rated as a Class 4 card, giving it a minimum write speed of 4MB per second. This gives it the sustained performance needed for higher-end cameras and even HD-quality video recording, PNY says. Using the card requires an SDHC-capable reader such as that built into the Nikon D40. The 4GB card will be available this month for online retailers at a price of $120, while brick-and-mortar stores will receive the card in early 2007.
